Thanks

Anyone ever consider a weeknight meeting one of these days instead of a Saturday? Those weekends seem hard to commit to :)

It would be difficult to find a free conference room (incl. video) where to meet in the evening. Plus some of our attendees have quite a drive, and it's much easier during week-ends. This being said, I am more than happy to meet Bogleheads for dinner if somebody is interested to chat.

I'll keep it in mind -- I end up in Boston for work every month or two. Also noted the March date down -- might be able to make that depend on ski conditions =)

I would definitely be open to an evening discussion over dinner.

Actually, Moshe, if you're willing to coordinate such a dinner/discussion every now and then, feel free to proceed! This would nicely complement our Saturday's sessions.

Seems that we have no master thread for Boston and surroundings. So let's open one.
